Accessing the Arts Group Meeting

Imagine your organisation has launched a sparkling Accessibility and Inclusion Action Plan 2018-2021 (AIAP). All stakeholders participated enthusiastically, but now it is time for the plan to embed itself into the daily grind.

How is that possible, what are the pragmatic and problematic issues and how are they resolved.

What will this Accessing the Arts Group meeting offer?

At this morning meeting, you will gain insights from our colleagues at the Australian Museum about the development of their AIAP. You will also hear about how they are delivering on their plan to ensure the Museum’s programs and resources are inclusive and accessible for all people. Hear from Tanya Goldberg, Creative Producer, who will share her wisdom alongside key staff from the Education Team, the Digital Team and the AIAP Steering Committee.

We will end with a Q and A-style panel including Accessible Arts very own Liz Martin (musician) and Riona Tindal (visual artist) who participated in the Museum’s Culture Up Late event (following the AIAP launch) in February. At the end of proceedings, there will be the opportunity to network with likeminded colleagues.

In Summary

Based on the feedback we received last year, our ATAG meetings in 2018 will be overflowing with practical information and first-hand experiences of what it takes to make arts and culture inclusive and accessible. Don’t miss out on this free professional development opportunity.
